We've stayed here several times. Clean rooms, courteous employees. We have only had a problem once. Students from a team or band were staying at the hotel and making noise. We weren't the only ones who complained. Staff members addressed the issue and we didn't hear anymore noise that night. Breakfast is good. We will continue to come back here...

This hotel will not honor your tax exempt status. I travel to DE several times a year and this is the only hotel that won't remove the room tax. In fact most of the others remove it without me having to tell them. This hotel insists it needs a form. No such form for the state of DE exists. According...

When working in the state of Delaware, I use this motel most often due in fact that it is centrally located in the middle of the state. Its overall outside appearance speaks volumes to the weary traveler and extends a warm welcome. Once inside, the appearance is even better than the outside! Im always greeted by a friendly face at...

Based on other reviews here, I expected more. Checking was quick and pleasant. As soon as we emerged from the elevator on the second floor, there was a stale stench of smoke even though all of the doors had a no smoking sign posted on them? Upon entering the room at the nearly empty hotel, we immediately could hear people...

Spacious clean rooms, comfortable beds, amazing full breakfast & very friendly staff. As rewards members we received a welcome bag at check in with water/snack and also a late check out which we really needed. The price might be a little higher than you are used to but they go above & beyond to make your stay the best!

I was back again (5th stay here). This time with the wife. For a long weekend get away. Included a day at the Beach ALL of the staff were extremely helpful and friendly! And, the full (not just continental) breakfast continues to be GREAT! Would highly recommend this property. About 30-40 minutes from the beaches.
